    I have a 07 3500 ram with just the head liner dome light,no under dash lights... How can I find a wire under dash to add lights, and have them go on when door is opened?
    Thanks,

    If you pry back the rubber boot going between the cab and the door, there's a wire in there that activates the dome lights. Splice a wire in and there's your power supply line.

    Can you wire into your trailer break wires? Turn on the lights and take your voltage tester to see which one is hot. I'm not 100% if it will work, but worth a shot.

    I had no issues till I put a led 3rd brake light on. Now I have to put a resistor in it keeps the exterior lights at a dim glow

    Well I have the dome and 2 front map lights but I can say the led's are the best cheapest interior mod I have done!! They are awesomely bright! I can actually see on my floor at night.. Dont have a before pic but believe me when I say it was about as bright as having 2 candles in there.
